A Quiet Sunday

Sunny - Hi 114 Lo 86 for Baghdad, Iraq
Morning Rain - Hi 103 Lo 71 for Qandahar, Afghanistan
Partly Cloudy - Hi 95 Lo 72 for Northern KY, USA

Song of the week: I Want You To Be My Love, Over the Rhine

I am smitten with this duo, Over the Rhine. Not because they formed in my hometown of Cincinnati or even because they named themselves after a historic (and sadly run down) part of the city, but because they are talented. This song is sweet and melodic and comforting. The indie video I found goes hand in hand. I hope you enjoy it.

Ramble:

I don't have the heart to write this week... enjoy your Sunday, have some coffee and listen to my music selection.

...and to all the wonderful fathers out there... Happy Father's Day.

Blogs and Links to Check Out This Week:

I try to visit LindaSog at Something and Half of Something a few times of week. She loves Marines almost as much as me...

Anyway, she put up a link that held me captivated for a good solid hour the other night. It is a tribute to Army Corporal Chris Mason. Chris' father sent an email....

I miss Chris today, more then ever; I was riding my bike and found tears running
down my face. I love my son, but he loved freedom more then he loved life it's
self.

Here is a link to Chris' MySpace that has been lovingly cared for by his father. I encourage you to watch all the videos... It is a reminder that on this day- we have sons and fathers in harms way... and we have sons and fathers waiting for loved ones in harms way to come home safe. Please, go, go now.

Lastly, in the next few days I'll be posting an intense piece written by my Italian buddy, Carlo at I Diavoli Neri. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the words.

Happy Father's Day and Have a great week everyone!

Blackops - Thanks for stopping in. And by the way, you need to post some more pics of your baby girl.
